I’m motivated to exercise because I feel the benefits in a very clear and positive way.
My favourite 10-minute exercise is dancing and cleaning my kitchen! I have the radio on and just clean, and if people see me that’s OK, it’s my kitchen, my disco!
You’ll notice the difference – you’ll soon feel much better and it will become a habit you don’t think twice about doing! We have only got one life, make the most of it.
By being more active you will feel better in yourself, you’ll be less stressed and you can help prevent ill-health. And…you’ll have fun!
I do something every day now and, even when I’m tired, I have a short, ten-minute workout that I do and immediately feel invigorated.
You don’t have to be active for hours on end, it only needs to be little bursts at a time, that’s how I started and I built it up gradually.
Being active has also given me confidence and inspired my daughter also.
